DAY 1
Arrive in Delhi
Meet our representative upon arrival in Delhi and check-in at the hotel.

DAY 2
Sightseeing in Delhi

Delhi – Agra (210 kms/ approx. 4 hours)

It is said that in battle lord Brahma killed the demon Vajra Nabh with a lotus flower, whose petals floated down to earth and landed in three places in and around Pushkar where lakes sprang up. The charming Pushkar lake amidst the hills has fifty-two bathing ghats, built around lake. The water around each ghat is supposed to have special powers. Pushkar is a city of temples of all sizes.

The foundations of this fort were laid in 1459; today it houses a museum with a fine collection of arms, costumes, paintings and even a collection of palanquins. Also visit Jaswant Thada, a marble cenotaph built to commemorate Maharaja Jaswant Singh II. The monument, in its entirety, is built out of intricately carved sheets of marble. These stones are extremely thin and polished so that they emit a warm glow when the sun's rays dance across their surface. Later, drive past the Mandore garden, which showcases cenotaphs of Jodhpur's former rulers; instead of the usual umbrella-shaped cenotaphs these are built along the lines of a Hindu temple. Overnight in Jodhpur.
